I might meet up with Bill in Nottingham the day before, but there's a good chance I could end up arriving in Liverpool morning of the ferry. There's a lass I had some chemistry with who's living in London at the moment... there may be a possibility my nights could be 'gainfully employed', lol.

Just to let you guys know that the local bus drivers are talking about going on strike over TT. This might be a problem if your thinking of relying on buses to get around.

That would be unfortunate for those not having wheels, hopefully they will get it straightened out before it caused a problem

Hi Joe,
I'm leaving on Monday to pick up my bike in Venice and then ride to the IOM. I'm arriving on Tuesday 28th. I haven't booked a campsite yet, but I will try the campsite near Hillberry first, thats where I stayed last year. If you see a good looking bald bearded old geezer riding an old rusty Suzuki Intruder, say hello, that will be me.
Regards,
Mark

The kindness of folk:
Someone has set up a page on Facebook called "Getting around during TT bus strike - Isle of Man", a bit like the one set up for campers last year when the weather was an issue.

If you think you will need transport to/from the ferry terminal or the airport, please post on the facebook page.

Edit: too add the link to the Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/GettingArou...trikeIsleOfMan
